Romania will observe three days of national mourning next week to mark the death of its former king Michael, who was one of the last surviving World War II leaders. The national flag will be flown at half-staff from December 14-16, which will coincide with the return of his body from Switzerland to the castle north of Bucharest where he was born. His coffin will then be transferred to throne room at the former Royal Palace in Bucharest, before being buried at Curtea de Arges, where his father Carol II and grandfather Ferdinand are buried.
